    I understand the correct dose is 1g per 22lbs. Is there any leeway in the dosage amount. I got the pills weighed out but they are a little overby a 1/2 gram or so. Will this matter very much? or do they need to be exact? I need 4.5g and they weigh 5g.

    That is only 10% over so I would think you are fine ...I would get several more opinions though.

    Well I hope it was OK because thats what they got. They were all bolused today. I had seperate pills for the smaller goats thats were 2 grams, the bigger ones got 5 grams.
